London Police Issue 428 Tickets for Stop Sign Violations
During the month of August, London Police issued 428 tickets for stop sign violations.
Police say the tickets were handed out in residential areas where Primary and Secondary schools are located.
Traffic Sergeant Ryan Scrivens says during the summer the roads are not as busy and motorists get into some bad driving habits, but with the school year about to get underway, it's time for enforcement to begin.
"We are going to be out there, especially in the areas where Primary and Secondary schools are located because the kids are going to be back and they are going to be excited and some of them are going to be distracted. So it's very important that our motorists are very mindful when they are in those areas and obeying the rules of the road whether it's the speed limit, stop signs, or stopping for a bus with its lights flashing".
He says running a stop sign is never a good idea, as students usually use crosswalks which are aligned with these stop signs.
